The Gentleman’s Essential Oxford with Samuel Hubbard

Sep 21st 2018

Every man needs a go-to shoe in his closet. Whether you’re enjoying a glass of red wine on your favorite rooftop bar on a Friday night or getting ready for a work conference, a classic shoe is a must-have style companion. The Oxford shoe has been man’s best friend for at least two centuries. Originally designed for only formal wear, the Oxford has evolved from its conservative beginnings to stand on its own as a viable option for everyday wear. This otherwise simple silhouette is defined by the cut and details of the upper. From “whole-cut” construction to wingtips, the subtle touches found on this style can punctuate any look. We at Hanig’s know that the most important factor to you is finding a shoe that’s comfortable and refined, so we went on the hunt for the perfect men’s oxford to add to your designer shoe collection.

Coming to you is Samuel Hubbard’s Highlander. The Highlander is a simple Oxford with a pebbled leather construction. Available in two neutral colors, timeless black and dark brown, it features a closed lacing system with ten tonal eyelets, a low heel, and a contrasting welt at the midsole. This spiffy style is finished with a supportive synthetic sole brought to you by Vibram. The Italian-based manufacturer is dedicated to improving the wearability and longevity of our favorite shoes. Vibram technology is specially engineered to provide performance-driven outsoles that are durable and lightweight with non-slip traction. The shock absorbency in every Vibram sole cleverly conserves energy, as well as redirects, impact evenly across the foot for ultimate comfort. The impressive functionality of the Highlander is just the tip of the iceberg, though.

This Oxford shoe is just as stylish as it is practical. From morning meetings to evening commuting, this shoe is a versatile essential. Pair the brown with navy blue slacks, a matching brown belt, a tartan plaid blazer, and contrast patterned socks for work. Meeting up with your best buds after work? Ditch your suit for straight-legged corduroy pants teamed with a short-sleeved polo shirt, braided leather wraparound bracelets, and your favorite sports watch to create a laidback look that oozes coolness. Highlander is a must to add to your suitcase on your next getaway, too. Don’t forget to include this oxford in your itinerary as you’ll save room in your suitcase with either color option pairing well with everything from neutral prints to textured solids. No matter the occasion or the outfit you choose, this oxford elevates your style and individuality.
